    I thought that Jamie Murray strung with full luxilon in the mid 70's. When did this change?

    I don't know if he was testing but that's what he asked for in Rome...

    AFAIK, his former setup was indeed full Alu but in the high 60s...

    Great stuff there.

    Quick question: Can we assume that the strings info is correct and the racquets are paintjobs?

    String info is correct -for the tournament at least- and yes, we can assume that a lot of racquets are pj

    Great post.

    Luxilon completely dominates in poly usage. Babolat chips in with some RPM and dominates the natural gut offerings, with Wilson chipping in occasionally with their gut.

    What the heck is Flex Infinity?

    An MSV-based rough poly with gamma ray treatment for better elasticity and tension retention. Two models, the white one is used by A-Tomic and the carbon black one is tested by Wawrinka.

    Davydenko did actually switch.

    Considering the stringers don't even seem to know if Isner is using PL II or Red Code, I certainly wouldn't expect that they know what's under the paint.

    So you're saying Wawrinka doesn't use RPM blast?

    Much more than you can ever imagine...:roll:

    Regarding Isner, he has both strings, i've seen it in his bag. Officially he uses TF, but since his strings came unpacked in stringing room...

    Fantastic stuff.

    So Wawrinka is testing a black version of Infinity Flex and Tomic is using a white version in a hybrid? Correct?

    Tomic has "officially" adopted FI strings, Wawa is just testing (still using RPM in tournament)

    I'm intrigued that there are so many Lux BBO users on that list.

    Does Lux BBO die as quickly as Alu or does it last (noticeably) longer before going dead?

    It shouldn't even matter to pros since they restring so frequently.

    No P1 player strings with them until they arrive (usually on monday); and wait, "that" Levine wasn't Jesse but a young russian (around 1000 ATP I believe) training some big chap out there.

    Great information, thanks for posting. Pardon my ignorance, but which string type and tension are listed first -- mains or crosses?

    He's never used that when I've strung for him. In Paris this year and last he was using Solinco Tour Bite for the mains and whatever gut he could get his hands on for the crosses.

    Interesting that Suarez uses synthetic gut, Li Na prefers Excel instead of gut as a cross and Simon hybrids RIP which is a pretty inexpensive string.

    Which goes to show that most of our problems aren't due the molecular formulations of the co-polys that we use and are related to technique and fitness.

    I'm not bothered about the pros, I'm curious as to whether BBO would work for me. I love Alu, but its dead after about 3 hours of hitting.

    Eiffel59, nice photos. Do you string at any other tournaments?

    I was THERE. Great tournament, I'll go next year as well :). Kukushkin's tension is absolutely crazy for stringing with gut. Full poly...yeah, but gut mains at that tension sounds interesting. Gotta check it out

    He doesn't normally string gut mains. Normally has full poly.

    .

    Williams didn't normally string hybrid. They did full gut.

    @Od1n, I hope our older posts misunderstanding is past now...next year if you'll be there you'll be welcome :)

    @tennis_balla, I did in the past (ask ericsson ;) ); coming back to pro stringing after a 4 yrs. lull due to personal reasons.

    Add this: almost all gut/multi mains were 5% prestretched, and crosses were 10% prestretched.

    There were exceptions, tho.

    They have done for the past several months. I know Kukushkin didn't use gut/poly earlier in the year, nor did he at Roland Garros.

    Nevertheless, he did it in Rome...and at least once in reverse, too.

    Edit...my mistake...at least once in "normal" hybrid. Apologies...
